Re: today....

Moved gravel for a path in my side yard shade garden.
Granddaughter's birthday was Wednesday, so I bought a small pickup load of
washed 3/8" minus gravel & a few buckets of washed sand and put it all on a
tarp in the backyard with her wading pools nearby and we had a "beach"
party. 7 of the 10 kids invited showed up & they had a blast. Hot dogs on
the Forman grill with chocolate milk & birthday cake.
So today, I moved the gravel off the lawn & onto the path. The sand in in a
pile for her to play in. I'm hoping the neighborhood cats will find that &
stay out of my window well. It's in a place I think she will ignore. If not,
I'll move it some morning before she's up & about. Also pulled a few weeds,
pruned some thorny roses that are encroaching on the path. 68 F, mild
breeze, brief shower & scattered clouds. Almost perfect gardening weather.
Stitches in my finger kept me out of the dirt for almost 3 weeks so it's
felt good to get a little sweaty.
 Now I'm going to put my feet up. Way too much salt for my puffy ankles this
